[image]North and South Platte Rivers, Nebraska: Image of the Day - NASA -- Astronaut photograph eol.jsc.nasa.gov/scripts/sseop/photo.pl?mission=ISS015&roll=E&frame=27232 ISS015-E-27232 was acquired on September 5, 2007, with a Kodak 760C digital camera using a 70 mm lens.. The image was taken by the www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/expeditions/expedition15/index.html Expedition 15 crew , and is provided by the ISS Crew Earth Observations experiment and Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, Johnson Space Center. The image in this article has been cropped and enhanced to improve contrast. Lens artifacts have been removed. The spaceflight.nasa.gov/home/index.html International Space Station Program supports the laboratory to help astronauts take pictures of Earth that will be of the greatest value to scientists and the public, and to make those images freely available on the Internet. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the NASA/JSC eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth.
Lake McConaughy and a tan-and-green patchwork of thousands of agricultural fields dominate this astronaut photo of western Nebraska and northeastern Colorado. The astronaut who shot this view was looking towards the east-northeast, focusing on the thin, green lines of the floodplains of the North and South Platte rivers. These join to form the Platte River near image upper right. From a geographical perspective, the photograph demonstrates how the Platte River system has determined transportatio...

Shallow channels of water weave around sandy islands along the 310-mile course of the Platte River through Nebraska. The river carries snowmelt from the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and Wyoming to the Missouri River, which drains into the Mississippi. Early settlers referred to the Platte as the river that was a mile wide and an inch deep. While the Platte once spanned a mile, changes in the natural flow over the last century caused by reservoirs and irrigation channels have allowed vegetation to...
